It’s the fourth week of June and so time for the final edit of this month’s image for Robyn’s One-Four Challenge. The picture was taken last year in Hartsholme Country Park in Lincoln, UK.
For this final edit I wanted to create a dreamy effect.
I began by opening the original image in Photoshop Elements 13 where I cropped it and added a difference clouds filter. I then reduced the contrast, increased the saturation and added a medium spectrum gradient map with 30% opacity. Next I opened it in Picmonkey where I made it glow with an Orton effect and added both frost and dark edges. I tried adding bokeh and radiance but decided against them in the end.
Hopefully it now looks like something seen in a dream…
Because it’s the final week I’m also adding a poll. Please let me know which one you liked best.
Here are all the edits together for comparison:
